In the foreground, on the left, a man in traditional Japanese dress crouches at the bank of a body of water that stretches through the work, under a bridge that spans the water and beyond. Wooden boats bob at the left, along the edge of the water. Trees line both sides of the water, and in the distance, Mt. Fujiyama rises up, pastel blue and snowy white.
